I am a newbee lots of reading has been done and lots more to come the question I have is this.
I am picking up in June a Full hive established we will check when we pickup the bees of course anyhow if I have the Nuc box or extra Hive would it be ok to split the hive to make 2 hives with an extra Queen or should I just let them be for my first season.

Thanks

You haven't said anything about the size of the hive that you expect to pick up in June (a single deep? double deep? mediums, etc) but in general you should be able to split a healthy hive in Texas in June.

If you haven't yet seen this page on splitting, it may be of value to you ....
